BBC's Big Life Fix is back and looking for a challenge. Could it be yours?


Does your child have a disability need that a new creative piece of technology could solve? Would you like to challenge scientists, engineers and specialists to create a piece of technology that could transform your lives?  Ben from the BBC may have the answer.  Check our what we received in our email inbox and if you are interested, contact the researchers ASAP.

We are currently producing a BBC Children in Need Special of the hit BBC Two show “The Big Life Fix”, an exciting and innovative science series that sees a skilled team of scientists, engineers and designers create bespoke technology for individuals and groups in need of help to transform their lives for the better.

In the first series, our team came up with solutions for a range of issues affecting individuals and communities, including building a bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet, making a new medical helmet for a little girl who just wants to fit in with her friends, and adapting a camera for a budding photographer who can no longer use his hands.

If you’re not familiar with the show, here is a short clip below which should hopefully illustrate the premise and tone of the series:

For our BBC Children in Need Special we are again looking for more children and young people who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention. Whether it’s a condition or disability that prevents a child from doing something they love or used to love doing, or a daily problem or challenge which you think could be helped by our brilliant team of inventors, we’d love to hear from you.

*Please see the attached a flyer for your reference. We are coming near the end of our research phase so if anyone is interested please do get in touch ASAP*
